What is mental health?

Positive mental health and well-being are a state of being comfortable and healthy, feeling good about who you are, having balance in your life and the ability to cope with life's challenges.

Mental health and personal well-being look different for everyone. Mental health is not the absence of mental illness, and well-being is not the same as happiness.

What is resilience?

Resilience is a person's ability to cope with and recover from stress and adversity. It is a skill that can be learned and strengthened. Positive experiences and having caring, supportive relationships help us feel safe and build resiliency.

The stronger a person's resiliency, the more successful they become at overcoming life's challenges.

  • Positive mental health is something we all deserve and need to continually work at.
  • We all need a support system to lean on when life gets complicated.
